If you are experiencing pain, sensitivity or swelling around your teeth, don’t hesitate to seek professional dental care.

The highly experienced and skilled team at Hawthorn Road Family Dental can provide you with a range of effective treatments, including root canal treatment if required.

When Do I Need a Root Canal Treatment?


Symptoms that may indicate the need for treatment include:

  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • Swelling of the gum near the affected tooth
  • Oozing of pus around the affected tooth
  • Facial swelling
  • Tooth discolouration 
  • What Could Cause These Symptoms?


    Proper oral hygiene maintenance is essential to avoiding infections, but sometimes the causes are not as clear. You may need a root canal procedure to address:

  • Untreated dental decay
  • Decay beneath a deep filling
  • Trauma that damages a tooth
  • Grinding of the teeth (bruxism)
  • Advanced gum disease 
  • To diagnose the issue, your dentist will perform an examination and take x-rays. The x-rays will reveal the number, size, curvature and depth of the roots to determine the complexity of the case.

    What Happens During the Process?

    During an endodontic treatment, your dentist will remove infected or dead pulp from inside your tooth. They will then clean, sterilise, shape and seal the canals to prevent further infection.

    How Long is the Treatment Process?

    An emergency root canal may require two or more visits depending on the complexity of the case and how long the infection takes to clear.

    Following this, a crown or complex restoration may be necessary to protect your tooth and prevent fracturing.
